Pilot Studies - Qiuhua Aim is to evaluate the trends of OSNs during a flood event and develop a new OSN based flood prediction and risk management system Explore a new approach by combining OSNs and traditional flood modeling for flood risk management.
Pilot Studies - Light The urban area of Tulse Hill in South London is going through rapid socio-technical change as part of local action research to increase residents’ social and material assets. Three novel digital sharing tools are being deployed across 800 households to inspire more sustainable community practices, to stretch resources and generate alternative social structures. Our project is an invited collaboration to follow developments in the early stages of implementation, which we wish to use as the basis for devising a design framework for sharing technologies
Challenge Fellowship - Harries This feasibility study will explore how interactive, consumer-relevant feedback can enhance engagement, increase awareness of consumption patterns, change attitudes, stimulate real-world behaviour change and, as a result, generate more sustainable patterns of usage. Combining expertise from computer science and social science, it will develop and evaluate a new variety of feedback system; using the case study of domestic electricity consumption to explore and evaluate the ways in which visualisation and interactivity can transform the impact of digitally delivered feedback.
